Representing Austin, Texas; Raleigh Hager absolutely blew the crowd away with her aerials with an extremely high degree of air and amplitude. Determined to take home her share of $40,000 in the Women’s Pro Surf she decorated her finals pass with a backside suface rotation, a variety of grabs and closed her run with a series of air 180′s to take home her first World Wake Surfing Championship. At only 10 years of age, Raleigh earned $6,000 becoming the World Champion against competitors that were more than double her age!
